Yet Another Stall Complaint Thread



Recommended Posts

Yeah. I know. Everyone stalls. Everyone has this issue. That doesn't make it any less annoying or any less frustrating to see around the same number on the scale, to see the fluctuation up and down. I'm not sure I'm actually on a stall or if this is just fluctuation, but I weigh literally the same I did last Monday today. I was lower yesterday. Of course, last Monday was a minimum on the fluctuation, whereas today is slightly higher than yesterday.

I'm just frustrated because I'm not eating a heck of a lot in general, though last week I was getting about 1000-1100 calories in a day (while hitting my Protein goals of 75+g.)

I’m right there with you! It is very, very frustrating. I guess the only thing we can do is keep doing what we’re doing and try to have patience. Wishing you the best.

Yep, stalled here since forever. Afraid I'm at maintenance but didn't lose enough weight yet/didn't think I was done losing weight.

I’ve gone days with the scale saying the same weight. Then usually a drop. But This week seems the longest run, five days and it dropped by mere ounces only to go back up again this morning. I track every day and can’t seem to pinpoint anything that triggers when the drop happens or why. I struggle with metabolic disorders and insulin resistance. I track calories and Protein but not carbs, I’d say it’s been very low carb though. The most sugar I get is from my gummy vitamins. It’s frustrating, and even if we know we aren’t alone in it, it’s still hard. My weight has always done this kind of stall I’m just afraid I will hit a wall at some point and not even get close to goal. Except I have split my goals in to three. The first is to no longer be considered obese ... I just feel like it wants to evade me. But maybe that’s just all my frustrations with everything I can’t control and I want one thing I can.

This is me also. No matter how much I tell myself stalls are normal, seeing the same number after all my workouts and clean eating is so frustrating

My doc told me I've lost 70% of my excess body weight, so she doesn't expect me to lose much more. I'm like hell nah, I've still got 40 lbs to go!

Yeah Like I posted a couple weeks ago, PCP says I am at 68.3% weight loss, He only expected 70%, sorry Son , you're getting me mixed up with the VSG folks , Bypassers can and do lose up to 85% comfortably, like you I have a little more to go to My Own Goal, I'm within 15 pounds and I AM NOT STOPPING WHEN I'M THAT CLOSE!!!! Don't Get Mad, Don't get Sad , Be Glad and Cheer ME on! And I DO NOT THINK THAT IS TOO MUCH TO REQUEST! After all I turned out on this roadway to be🚗THE LITTLE JALOPY THAT COULD! BEEP BEEP GLORY-GLORY BEEP BEEP.

      Yesterday I discovered stretchy pants. It was the first time that I walked into a normal store and dared to try on clothes in over many many years. Scary, but I found some guy chinos that I liked. I was even able to wear women's sizes even though the legs were wayyyyy too short.

      Down 31 pounds in my first month! OK, so a month and two days, but I'm counting it anyway. 😆
      At this point, I'm doing well overall. According to surgeons' instructions, I'm on soft foods for another week-ish. I'm so ready for solids - the soft foods can be such "sliders" and I have to be extra, extra careful.
      For example, my refried beans + dollop of plain Greek yogurt + tomatillo salsa verde became a problem. I never felt satisfied and felt I could have easily had a much bigger serving. Then, far worse was when I made homemade hummus - holy cow it is SO GOOD, but again - felt like I could have downed a quart, no problem. 😂
      It's (for me at least) extremely challenging to "eat mindfully" when the food is that soft. I mean for crying out loud, there's nothing to "chew on"! 😂
      So, couple of days ago - I committed to no more refried beans and no more hummus. Farewell my delicious friends. Going to focus on chicken and tuna and eggs for the time being (ground up til mushy, of course). 
      I'm hoping that once I get the go-ahead to introduce solids I will be able to feel the restriction. Because honestly? I'm only a month in, and I feel NO restriction. It's frustrating, but not the end of the world. Willpower was never my problem. But I'm so looking forward to that feeling I hear a lot on here when people say "Oh I ate half an egg and was SO STUFFED." This has....not been my experience. 😕
      Really hoping that's because my foods are so mushy/soft right now. We shall see. 
      Regardless, I'm 100 percent committed. I hear over and over how this tool is the most powerful for about a year, maybe/possibly a wee bit more. I will not sabotage that for the world. 
      So - doing my happy dance at 31 pounds down - I'm in a "weight decade" I haven't seen in a very long time. And it only gets better from here!

      Hi!
      Thank you for replying.   It means the world to me.  It also confirmed what I been feeling about which procedure to choose.   I fall into the category as you do and elected the sleeve as it seemed to be less invasive and recovery would be better and faster,  however I am so afraid to regain the weight back since I rarely eat and obesity runs in my family.   I have two siblings that had the bypass and they have been successful.  My sister was in the high 400's and is about 140 now and has been for several years since her procedure.  I guess I felt that the sleeve would allow me to have more control, however I realized that I can't control my genetics and that is one of the biggest reasons that I am here.  Yes, I have not always made the best choices but trust me when I say that I have been on the loss and regain + more rollercoaster weight ride for yrs! I have spent so much money as I am sure you have as well as many others who are going through this.  It is not easy and anyone who thinks this is a copout is crazy!!! This has been harder than anything I have done including hiring a personal trainer to kick my butt in the gym! And still with all the gym hours, clean eating "not to mention the clean eating cost" I knew it was time that I moved to the next step to finally be who I know in my head and heart cause when I see myself in the mirror,  well let's just say is not the girl I see in my mind. 
      So thanks again for your reply and I hope that we can keep in touch through our journey. 
      😊

      I'm going in for a sleeve revision October 4th. It worked well for me, and I am not back to my starting weight. However, a revision is strongly encouraged at this time (there are additional medical issues). I have decided to forgo the insurance process, even though I know I would eventually be approved. "Eventually" is the key issue here. I have a small window to create this to where it will not impact my work or home life as much, and waiting for the insurance approval would take over a year.
